July 12, 2017

"ENWIN is always excited to participate in The Dragon Boat Festival. It is a fun day, and best of all we get to support finding the cure for breast cancer, a disease that impacts so many loved ones in our community." Dragan Savic, Distribution Engineer & Team Captain

Windsor ON: ENWIN employees once again proved their commitment to the community by racing in the Windsor Essex Dragon Boat Festival for the Cure on Sunday, July 9, 2017.

"Pulling together our Busting with Energy team was easy," said Team Captain Dragan Savic. "Because everyone wants to show how much they care." He pulled together a 25 member team for ENWIN, that included employees, family and friends. The team gathered at Sand Point Beach bright and early to participate in the day long festival.

The perfect weather for this year's event prompted a fantastic turn out. Team members were excited as they gathered in their tent to stretch and socialize prior to paddling.

“I love this event. I have particiapted every year that I have worked at ENWIN," said Dena Barrette, Supervisor Fleet and Site.

Busting with Energy paddled in a total of three races staggered throughout the day. The first two races qualified them for the finals in the B division, where they won the bronze medal for third place. Even more important, the team raised more than $2,400.

Congratulations to Busting with Energy for paddling, placing and raising funds to show your community how much you care.

Funds raised by the event contribute to the $1.2 million pledge that will help to pay for state-of- the-art breast cancer screening equipment at the Windsor Regional Hospital Breast Health Centre.
